Under the Big Black Sun Book Summary : Under the Big Black Sun explores the nascent Los Angeles punk rock movement and its evolution to hardcore punk as it's never been told before. John Doe of the legendary band X and co-author Tom DeSavia have woven together an enthralling story of the legendary West Coast scene from 1977-1982 by enlisting the voices of people who were there. The book shares chapter-length tales from the authors along with personal essays from famous (and infamous) players in the scene. Through interstitial commentary, John Doe "narrates" this journey through the land of film noir sunshine, Hollywood back alleys, and suburban sprawl. Illustrated with 50 rare photos, this is the story of the art that was born under the big black sun.

More Fun in the New World Book Summary : Sequel to Grammy-nominated bestseller Under the Big Black Sun, continuing the up-close and personal account of the L.A. punk scene, with 50 rare photos Picking up where Under the Big Black Sun left off, More Fun in the New World explores the years 1982 to 1987, covering the dizzying pinnacle of L.A.'s punk rock movement as its stars took to the national -- and often international -- stage. Detailing the eventual splintering of punk into various sub-genres, the second volume of John Doe and Tom DeSavia's west coast punk history portrays the rich cultural diversity of the movement and its characters, the legacy of the scene, how it affected other art forms, and ultimately influenced mainstream pop culture. The book also pays tribute to many of the fallen soldiers of punk rock, the pioneers who left the world much too early but whose influence hasn't faded. As with Under the Big Black Sun, the book features stories of triumph, failure, stardom, addiction, recovery, and loss as told by the people who were influential in the scene, with a cohesive narrative from authors Doe and DeSavia. Along with many returning voices, More Fun in the New World weaves in the perspectives of musicians Henry Rollins, Fishbone, Billy Zoom, Mike Ness, Jane Weidlin, Keith Morris, Dave Alvin, Louis Pérez, Charlotte Caffey, Peter Case, Chip Kinman, Maria McKee, and Jack Grisham, among others. And renowned artist/illustrator Shepard Fairey, filmmaker Allison Anders, actor Tim Robbins, and pro-skater Tony Hawk each contribute chapters on punk's indelible influence on the artistic spirit. In addition to stories of success, the book also offers a cautionary tale of an art movement that directly inspired commercially diverse acts such as Green Day, Rancid, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Wilco, and Neko Case. Readers will find themselves rooting for the purists of punk juxtaposed with the MTV-dominating rock superstars of the time who flaunted a "born to do this, it couldn't be easier" attitude that continued to fuel the flames of new music. More Fun in the New World follows the progression of the first decade of L.A. punk, its conclusion, and its cultural rebirth.

Black Sun Book Summary : A thrilling debut set at the height--and in the heart--of Soviet power, with intricately plotted machinations, secrets and surveillance, corrupt politicos and puppet masters in the Politburo, and one devastating weapon. It is the dawn of the 1960s. In order to investigate the gruesome death of a brilliant young physicist, KGB officer Major Alexander Vasin must leave Moscow for Arzamas-16, a top secret research city that does not appear on any map. There he comes up against the brightest, most cutthroat brain trust in Russia who, on the orders of Nikita Khrushchev himself, are building a nuclear weapon with 3,800 times the destructive potential of the Hiroshima bomb. RDS-220 is a project of such vital national importance that, unlike everyone else in the Soviet Union, the scientists of Arzamas-16 are free to think and act, live and love as they wish, so long as they complete the project and prove to their capitalist enemies that the USSR now commands the heights of nuclear supremacy.

Half of a Yellow Sun Book Summary : With her award-winning debut novel, Purple Hibiscus, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie was heralded by the Washington Post Book World as the “21st century daughter” of Chinua Achebe. Now, in her masterly, haunting new novel, she recreates a seminal moment in modern African history: Biafra’s impassioned struggle to establish an independent republic in Nigeria during the 1960s. With the effortless grace of a natural storyteller, Adichie weaves together the lives of five characters caught up in the extraordinary tumult of the decade. Fifteen-year-old Ugwu is houseboy to Odenigbo, a university professor who sends him to school, and in whose living room Ugwu hears voices full of revolutionary zeal. Odenigbo’s beautiful mistress, Olanna, a sociology teacher, is running away from her parents’ world of wealth and excess; Kainene, her urbane twin, is taking over their father’s business; and Kainene’s English lover, Richard, forms a bridge between their two worlds. As we follow these intertwined lives through a military coup, the Biafran secession and the subsequent war, Adichie brilliantly evokes the promise, and intimately, the devastating disappointments that marked this time and place. Epic, ambitious and triumphantly realized, Half of a Yellow Sun is a more powerful, dramatic and intensely emotional picture of modern Africa than any we have had before. From the Hardcover edition.

The Box of Frogs and the Black Dog Book Summary : This chapbook is an exploration of a chronic condition that has followed me for a long time. The Black Dog, depression, has been with me all of my adult life, on and off. The Box of Frogs, anxiety, is a more recent acquisition over the last 25 years. Keeping the depression company, these two have been part of my life and relationships with everyone, especially my family and friends. I have come late to poetry, after dabbling as a literate teen, and I can only hope I have improved. This is a personal exploration of these feelings, and I hope that it will be of help to some to see them expressed in words on a page.

The Empire Strikes Black Book Summary : City Council President Joseph Coolman was pisst. His eyes were filled with vinegar, bile, rage you name it! I mean hotter than Marge Tartaglione on a bad day... "I promise you on the grave of my father that I will destroy that son of bitch!" scowled Joe Coolman as he sipped his Hennessy. He was sitting in the dark of his City Council President Office firmly affixed in his big leather chair. He slowly rocked back and forth. He was like a cobra. Ready to pounce. Maybe like a panther. But not moving too quickly. This one would take a little time. "Big Blarney my ass," he spoke to himself. And a patient man he was.... NOT A HAPPY BREAKFAST Democratic Party Unity Breakfast, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Bellevue Stratford Hotel. No matter how bad the political war or election, primary or general, the eggs get scrambled together into an omelet. They meet the day after the election to make peace. To unify. To continue to solidify the dominant political party again no matter what. Philly is a Democrat town. No ifs, ands, or cannolis about it. With a 7 to 1 voter registration advantage in the fifth largest city in the country (No, Philly didn't drop to lower than 6th or 7th nationally except maybe in the National League East). In terms of voter advantage, not even Frank Rizzo could switch over that Democrat number to Republican. Not even half would do it for the Bambino these days. With a voter lead like that, Johnny Bouchee and The Democratic Party of Philadelphia County / City of Philadelphia had "fuck you votes." He didn't need shit from anybody to win a general election by 4 or 5 to one in November even if the roof fell in or Rizzo appeared in the clouds over Boathouse Row. But this past primary created a lot of bad blood. A lot. The cuts went deep, and the screwing was of blarney and booze. The good of it, for Johnny Bouchee, was The Irish retook the City politically. It had been a while. But Johnny and Bobby Eamon were sitting pretty these days. They were smirking a great deal as the sun glimmered in those Irish Eyes. But like I said, this one cut deep. There was gonna be a price to pay. This Democrat's Unity Breakfast needed a lot of salve and bandages to heal. Salve? They needed more than that! They needed morphine and transplant organs to heal this trauma. The road to recovery went through the heart of North Philadelphia. The reason for it was simple. The African American Political Hierarchy took more than a haircut as James Francis Malloy became the Democratic Nominee for Mayor of Philadelphia. In truth, they got scalped. And the blood was all over Johnny Bouchee's and Bobby Eamon's hands. It happened like this every primary election. It was lick the wounds day and make peace and give respect to the vanquished over cold eggs and scrapple. In fact, Johnny Bouchee had been

In Search of Jolie Blon Book Summary : Bill Black illustrates what happens when you live by the stories from songs listed on old jukeboxes found in the types of places your mother warned you about, religions moralize against, politicians hit for donations and everyone else says, "Damn, I wish I could have been there!" The poem stories explore the murky boundaries of meanings of morality, ethics and legality, of shadow realms between the world of known science and almost forgotten myths. He taps into chords almost 4000 years old and as recent as yesterday afternoon. Is it a realm of venal and deadly sins? Well, maybe, but only if done correctly. Snowflakes beware! You will be offended and maybe melted. The title of the book is derived from a Cajun song about a now departed girlfriend. It has been sung and recorded by singers across most of the US. The book provides a variety of answers to what could happen to the Jolie Blons we encounter.

Creating the Future Book Summary : Conceived as a challenge to long-standing conventional wisdom, Creating the Future is a work of social history/cultural criticism that examines the premise that the progress of art in Los Angeles ceased during the 1970s—after the decline of the Ferus Gallery, the scattering of its stable of artists (Robert Irwin, Ed Kienholz, Ed Moses, Ed Rusha and others), and the economic struggles throughout the decade—and didn’t resume until sometime around 1984 when Mark Tansey, Alison Saar, Judy Fiskin, Carrie Mae Weems, David Salle, Manuel Ocampo, among others became stars in an exploding art market. However, this is far from the reality of the L.A. art scene in the 1970s. The passing of those fashionable 1960s-era icons, in fact, allowed the development of a chaotic array of outlandish and independent voices, marginalized communities, and energetic, sometimes bizarre visions that thrived during the stagnant 1970s. Fallon’s narrative describes and celebrates, through twelve thematically arranged chapters, the wide range of intriguing artists and the world—not just the objects—they created. He reveals the deeper, more culturally dynamic truth about a significant moment in American art history, presenting an alternative story of stubborn creativity in the face of widespread ignorance and misapprehension among the art cognoscenti, who dismissed the 1970s in Los Angeles as a time of dissipation and decline. Coming into being right before their eyes was an ardent local feminist art movement, which had lasting influence on the direction of art across the nation; an emerging Chicano Art movement, spreading Chicano murals across Los Angeles and to other major cities; a new and more modern vision for the role and look of public art; a slow consolidation of local street sensibilities, car fetishism, gang and punk aesthetics into the earliest version of what would later become the “Lowbrow” art movement; the subversive co-opting, in full view of Pop Art, of the values, aesthetics, and imagery of Tinseltown by a number of young and innovative local artists who would go on to greater national renown; and a number of independent voices who, lacking the support structures of an art movement or artist cohort, pursued their brilliant artistic visions in near-isolation. Despite the lack of attention, these artists would later reemerge as visionary signposts to many later trends in art. Their work would prove more interesting, more lastingly influential, and vastly more important than ever imagined or expected by those who saw it or even by those who created it in 1970’s Los Angeles. Creating the Future is a visionary work that seeks to recapture this important decade and its influence on today’s generation of artists.
